nice to know somebody finally explained that part to me. I always confused it with age. the tank is mature enough to keep the fish alive, which is a nice thing to have.

Yeah, it's cycled but definitely not matured which means the full biofilm has accumulated, generally you're passed the Diatom bloom. Maturity is different for each tank and what its inhabitants are along with plants and if they are actively growing. Most of the time it's a tank that is 6 months old or older for non planted tanks. Does that all make sense?

A little bit. I'm still a little used to the way I started, which was in 1995, which meant from whatever books I can find and trial and error. Basically I'm still a little bit of old school when it comes to some things.

That's alright! I know things change all the time, and some of it can be pretty intense sometimes! But I know it's not easy to change your opinion on something, heck, I even have issues with that now and I'm still pretty darn "green" as far as most aquarists are concerned! haha, but that's the reason we have these forums, so that we can further our knowledge and hopefully understand it as well

And the downside to these forums is that everybody has a different opinion on things and not everybody is going to be right about everything. Sometimes the best lessons come from experience.
